A week on your own might be just what the doctor ordered sometimes. Other times you might find yourself all on your lonesome when you don’t want to be. I did this week when Mrs Wife went to Hong Kong to visit her best friend.
I’ll be fine, I thought. I’m a young, independent woman and 9 sleeps isn’t all that long. Then one day I sobbed at a song on Spotify and realised I’m not so good at being on my own.
So I thought I’d share my top tips, just in case you find yourself on your own this weekend (or ever).
- Make some plans
Doing nothing is fun for about 20 minutes. Don’t get bored, it makes you lonely so have some things to fill your day.
- Plan your meals
Or you’ll end up eating junk or food that isn’t so great. Why not try a new recipe or look up recipes for one?
- Put together an awesome Netflix ‘List’
Because there’s sod all on TV. I’m talking shit chick flicks, documentaries, real life dramas. If you’re like me stay away from anything scary.
- Load up on bubble bath supplies
Take time to self care. Grab a bath bomb, a bottle of matey, candles. You know the drill.
- Grab an early night and an early morning
Watch the sun rise. It’s so peaceful in a morning and you can enjoy the quiet on your own. And the early night? You’ll need it if you’re getting up at 5, take a book and let yourself nod whenever you’re ready.
What do you do to enjoy time on your own?
